- Vegetable oil 3 tablespoons
- 2 garlic cloves
- Onion 1 piece
- Sweet Paprika 1 teaspoon
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- Ground black pepper to taste
- Salt to taste
- Thick cream 200 milliliters
- Main ingredients: Chicken, Orange, Lemon, Cream
- Portion 3-4
Frying pan, kitchen knife, cutting board, spatula, strainer.
Step 1: marinate the fillet.
Rinse oranges and lemon, squeeze the juice from them into the bowl.
Cut the onions with feathers, and the garlic with straws and add all this to the marinade.
Add paprika, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper here.
Stir the marinade thoroughly.
Cut the chicken into thick cubes, dip them in the marinade, mix everything well so that the meat is bathed in spices, cover with cling film and put in the refrigerator. You need to marinate the chicken about 2 hours.
Step 2: fry the fillet.
Heat the vegetable oil in a pan and send the chicken fillet into it, shaking off the pieces of meat from the marinade slightly.
Sauté the fillet until golden brown on all sides. Cook on high heat so that the meat is fried, not stewed.
Step 3: add the orange sauce to the fillet.
Now add the marinade to the pan, filtering it through a strainer so that the onion and garlic do not get into the chicken (this all goes to waste, as it is not necessary for further cooking).
Stew the fillet until tender.
Step 4: add the cream.
At the very end of cooking, pour thick fat cream into the pan to the chicken and simmer everything for just a couple of minutes, then remove from heat and serve.
Step 5: Serve the chicken in orange sauce.
Serve chicken fillet in orange sauce on a pad of boiled rice or mashed potatoes, pasta or couscous will be just as good and tasty here. This is a hearty, aromatic dish. Poultry meat acquires softness and a special taste due to the citrus marinade. And what a sauce comes with chicken! Eating!
Enjoy your meal!
- If necessary, you can replace the cream with fat sour cream. Also add it at the end of cooking.
